Joan Merrill, author of the Casey McKie jazz mystery series, announces the release of her latest audiobook, “And All That Motive,” narrated by longtime Bay Area jazz radio host Alisa Clancy.
Set at a festival near San Francisco, “And All that Motive” has Casey racing against time to solve the killing of jazz singer Sid Satin and remove suspicion from her best friend, club owner and singer Dee Jefferson. Sorting through a raft of suspects, Casey unravels the mystery with one of the most surprising endings of the five-book series.
